World Assembly Resolutions

Repeal "Condemn DEN"
The Security Council,

Noting the acts of aggression committed by the DEN military machine against innocent regions and recognizing it as a threat,

Appalled by the simply atrocious number of spelling, grammar, and syntax errors throughout the proposal, including:

  • The use of “appaled” instead of “appalled” in the third clause,

  • The inconsistent use of punctuation marks throughout the proposal,

  • The statement that the invasion of Catholic occurred in “the 2012”,

  • The multiple uses of the phrase “on Nationstates” in clauses two and five, which a member of the Secretariat has described as being “grammatically incorrect”,

  • And the horrific half thought, “even though the atrocities they have done to many regions on Nationstates” in the sixth clause,

Asserting that the language used throughout SC #187 is not fit to be used in a book report, let alone in an international law,

Exasperated by the concept that there were raiding “strategies and tactics that condemned the Black Riders”, when it is a well known fact that it was the Security Council that condemned The Black Riders,

Recognizing that the current incarnation of DEN and the Black Riders are separate entities, despite similarities in style and membership,

Shocked that SC # 187 insinuates that DEN “destroys unique cultures and communities” throughout NationStates, but fails to provide even a single example of a refound to support this claim,

Reminded that while raiding is capable of taking away a community’s region, it is impossible to permanently destroy a region, and even more difficult to destroy a community in NationStates,

Further reminded that DEN has not even refounded a native region by force since its revival, excluding the raider region Power Is Rising, which negates the second clause completely as none of the listed raids caused regional destruction on any scale,

Confused as to why DEN’s raid of Paradoxia went completely unmentioned throughout SC# 187, despite being one of DEN’s most controversial raids,

Realizing that the condemnation was publicly dismissed by many Security Council veterans as being hastily submitted and poorly written,

Remembering that the condemnation of DEN is not a time sensitive issue, and should be done with at least enough care as to not make basic spelling and grammar mistakes,

Concluding that Security Council Resolution #187 “Condemn DEN” is not fit for use by this esteemed body,

Hereby Repeals SC #187: Condemn DEN.

Repeal "Liberate The Place that has No Big Banks"
The World Assembly,

Noting that the goal of Security Council Resolution #201 “Liberate The Place That Has No Big Banks” was to remove the password applied to The Place That Has No Big Banks by the raider organization known as HYDRA Command, in order to allow the native population a chance at reclaiming their homeland;

Disappointed that a high number of the region’s natives abandoned the region less than 12 hours after the initial invasion, and have not made any attempts to mobilize international forces against the raiders even after SC #201 took effect, thwarting any chance at retaking the region;

Observing that despite the best efforts of this esteemed council, the forces of HYDRA Command have successfully refounded the region, taking away any ability to bring the region back under native control;

Seeing no point in keeping a Liberation in effect over a raider controlled region, especially when the original natives have established a more stable home in The Region That Has No Big Banks;

Hoping that future Liberations will be more effective in combatting raider occupations;

Hereby repeals Security Council Resolution #201, "Liberate The Place That Has No Big Banks".

Repeal "Condemn DEN"
The Security Council,

Reminded that the author of SC #192 "Condemn DEN" was unaware of the typical procedures of the Security Council, and therefore neglected to seek assistance from their fellow Security Council members in drafting their proposal,

Noting that despite heavy criticism, and the disapproval of many well known World Assembly members, delegates, and authors, SC #192 was passed,

Deciding that SC #192 is, frankly, poorly written and riddled with factual errors,

Disturbed by the fact that SC #192 attempts to downplay the act of invading by referring to said activity as a mere “sport”,

Observing that despite the author’s claims that DEN was known for “destroying small regions”, DEN was actually never successful in destroying any inhabited regions,

Exasperated by SC #192’s inclusion of DEN’s intelligence gathering and embassy forming as condemnable acts, seeing as the strategies employed by DEN in these areas are widely used in various other large regions,

Bewildered that SC #192 only includes three examples of DEN raids, neglecting to note the far more important raids that DEN committed on Paradoxia, Power is Rising, Japan, Union of Proletarian States, California, St Abbaddon, Yorkshire, and NeoConfederate States of America,

Pointing out that one of the few examples of a DEN raid SC #192 identifies was an incident in September 2015 involving an internal coup of The West Pacific, in which DEN was the primary region providing support to a rogue Delegate, which is not widely considered to be a raid beyond DEN propaganda,

Cringing at the timing of this proposal, going into effect directly before a major scandal resulted in the complete annihilation of the region known as DEN, the fallout of which has made the region permanently uninhabitable,

Concluding that the only reason SC #192 was passed was due to the belief that many uninformed World Assembly members held that this proposal was the replacement for SC #187 Condemn DEN, which had recently been repealed, unaware that SC #192 was submitted while the replacement proposal was still being drafted,

Finding that while it is important for the Security Council to take action against Predatory regions that cause harm to others, it is equally important that the Security Council upholds its long held traditions and procedures, and hoping that removing this resolution will help encourage other aspiring Security Council authors to present their proposals for drafting before submission,

Believing that due to SC #192’s poor quality, factual inaccuracies and exclusion of major events, the Resolution should be removed from the record,

Hereby Repeals Security Council Resolution #192 "Condemn DEN".
